Rabbi Irwin Kula explores desire in spiritual life. Rather than leading us astray, our longings are gateways to self-discovery. Our yearnings, once understood, can lead us to discover an expansive vision of God or a wider reality. And when we embrace even our most painful or taboo desires, we can love more deeply and live more fully.
